Single mom struggling with a 14yr old 8th grader with ADHD

I took him off medication 3yrs ago because he continued to have trouble in school. It did not seem to be making any difference in his abilities to "sit still" and "focus". In a regular classroom setting he is to sit still, be quiet and listen. He is a Kinesthetic learner and cannot succeed in a traditional classroom even though he has an IEP with accommodations. It's not enough!! Now he has been deemed a behavior problem because he continues to disrupt the classroom. I'm fed up with the traditional classroom/public schools. I'm a single mom who works full time and not eligible for income support. How am I able to afford these private schools or special ADHD schools that can accommodate my child!!??? I'm beyond frustrated. I ONLY WANT MY CHILD TO BE ABLE TO LEARN AND BE EDUCATED. Not be labeled a behavior problem!
